cheap, cheap ...

20 cent patterns from the op shop for a wrap skirt (1976) and dress for Maya (1981).

The kids have been unpicking last years wrecked art smock to use as a pattern...

Thrifty shopping ..... or too much spending on etsy last week?

I think I'm going to have to go to your op shop. I don't think ANYTHING is 20cents here.

Looking forward to seeing what you do with the patterns and art smock.

Some ace pattern finds, well done indeed!! Love that you convert old clothes to jammies, i do that too!! As a fellow mummy of 4, i find hand-me-downs provide endless pyjama solutions & yes, after 3 girls, my son at the end has been known to sleep in pink. Sure that lead to him loving pink, love hearts & rainbows for the first 5 years of his life. What a lovely blog. Love Posie

I'm sure I used to have the pattern on the left, Rachel, back in the good old days when my hair was the same length and colour as the girl's on the cover and the figure was about the same as hers too. Ah, nostalgia!
